The media can no longer ignore
Obama and Hillary Clinton´s problems

Washington Examiner [DC], by Noemie Emery

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Of course they will ignore. It´s not just their job to do so; it´s a calling. If 0 stood at the podium in a clown costume juggling live hedgehogs, they´d say it was refreshing to see his innovative approach to public speaking.

All joking aside, it is pretty alarming when the President has checked out and appears to have lost his mind. He had access to some pretty scary stuff.

Obama has always been weird. He is just feeling less pressure to hide his malevolent, tormented personality. But far weirder than Obama are the people who voted for him in 2008 and then voted again for him after 4 years do incessant lies, incredible corruption, disastrous policies and blatant abuse of the public´s trust.

Hillary is more of the same, a malevolent person who is happiest when lying about her lies. She is a person who has willingly clung to the immoral and personally embarrassing coat tails of her husband to great wealth and undeserved fame while claiming she is the one woman capable of breaking the presidential glass ceiling.

If Obama is the King of Frauds, Hillary is its Queen in waiting. Sadly, too many Americans are willing to be their subjects,

For a narcissist, the response to disapproval is disengagement. Obama was OK as long as the people he hates disapproved. Now it´s becoming more obvious that a few liberals no longer adore him, so the wheels are coming off.

Love this article, and this most of all:

"Obama will not be the fourth president (if you count Nixon) to be impeached, but he may become the first to be led away by the hand to a nice, quiet place where he can get treatment. And that would make history, too."

Perhaps a lot of liberal women admired Hillary Clinton in spite of her abused wife syndrome. Surely, however, after the Monica debacle was exposed, by the time the family took that press photo walk to the helicopter with Bill hanging his head and holding on to the dog while Hillary marched ahead looking triumphant...surely by then even the most ardent women´s rights supporting female would have understood that there ought to be a limit to what a woman should endure in pursuit of personal ambition, that there should be one humiliation too far. When Hillary Clinton still remained in the marriage, supportive and defending her husband in order to protect her ownpolitical future, I would have expected women across the country to be appalled.

A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks about NBA ratings and where he will live when he leaves. And having stopped being president, he has also stopped being presidential -- Politico reported last week of a rally, "So punchy was he that he was leaning arms hanging off the front of his podium, telling a few hecklers to ´sit down´ and instructing the Secret Service not to bother removing them, Obama said he was feeling liberated. ... ´I don´t have to run for office anymore, so I can just let it rip,´ he said."

Am I the only one who sees this as impeachable? He is not faithfully executing the responsibilities of his job. In fact, he has chosen to retire while still in office, which leaves America without a President.

It has the same effect as being leaderless, so why has no one in positions of power seriously called this dereliction of duty?

We have one crisis, one failed policy after another, and POTUS is puttering and sputtering about being "called names".

Is he normal? Or do we have a mentally-deficient person in the White House? This isn´t funny. It´s life and death and we´ve got no President.

#5 I wish he would check out. All he has done is stop the pretense that he´s anything but what he has always been. And if we listened, he told us what he was about until the 2008 campaign kicked in and he began the pretense.

Not serious about doing the work of president

beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job.

That reminds me of something I heard at a management seminar years ago about dealing with personnel problems.

Speaker said that if you are lucky, a problem employee will "quit and go." If you are unlucky, a problem employee will "quit and stay."

We are unlucky.

Truth is, many of us get our information thru the internet on Lucianne or Drudge or Breitbart, and by the time the MSM highlights some news story, we´ve already known about it for a couple days.

This article says that Politico called Obama "punchy", but we´ve already read about his inappropriate laughter and seen the pictures of him nodding off in meetings, so it´s old news to us.

The media would like to ignore some things, but they are not the only source of news anymore.

Think about this: obama has turned every allie we had against us, he does everything he can to assist our enemies. He has pretty much started race wars in this country. He has destroyed the health-care system and jobs across the country and countless other disasters.

Now, he suddenly lies back in the weeds and lets all of this fester with no leadership to be found. This is part of the plan, let the country now tear itself apart and send in the military to ´put down these radicals.´ It´s coming people.

#13, What some people might be be laying the foundation for with the increasing talk of Obama being delusional is not impeachment by rather the Vice President and senior cabinet members invoking Article 4 of the 25th Amendment. Impeachment means a finding of malfeasance, is usually lead by the opposition, and is highly divisive. The 25th Amendment is invoked by his own people and would be like an intervention, telling the President he seriously needs professional help. Who can be against removing a burden from a sick man and getting him help?

Of course the late-night hosts/comedians want Hillary to run for president. They need more material and Hillary has so much baggage (literally and figuratively) that they won´t even have to try to write their jokes. It´s all there right in front of them. As for Obama, he will provide everything necessary for years and years of jokes after he leaves office. The comedians can´t wait.

Obama has not quit. He just doesn´t do what a president is expected to do. He views his priorities differently than any previous president. He is a hardcore lefty who believes the United States is the reason for all the problems in the world, and needs to be torn down and remade. So far, he has been successful. If he had actually quit, congress would have moved in to fill the void that would have been left behind. He is working very hard at blocking congress from doing anything useful.

FTA: Obama will not be the fourth president (if you count Nixon) to be impeached, but he may become the first to be led away by the hand to a nice, quiet place where he can get treatment.

Wouldn´t that be a sight!

FTA: The only girl and woman Hillary Clinton was ever concerned for was Hillary Clinton.

Yes. The masks hiding the essence of Obama and Hillary! have recently been lowered. What we see isn´t pretty. But it´s for real. The Nation, so long inured to political play acting, is beginning to shudder in belated recognition.

By his actions the president has effectively told us that he no longer wants to do the job to which he was elected. He´s bored, and just wants to hang loose taking pot shots at anyone who´s not giving him the requisite respect. But respect must be earned, and Obama has earned very little during his lifetime, least of all our respect.

Hillary! is fighting a losing battle pretending that she is a charitable, caring human being. Her cackling with boastful laughter about keeping a child rapist from doing hard time reveals a soul unconcerned with human decency. That, and her bare-faced lies to parents of the Benghazi Four ought to make her radioactive to an American electorate that by mow should have had a belly full of empty-souled leftist pols who feign decency every day. Eventually, the truth will out.

Satellite photos show how the depredations of dictators have turned the world’s fourth largest inland sea into a poisonous desert. MOSCOW, Russia — Photographs that NASA released this week show the graphic chronicle of a natural disaster in Central Asia’s Kyzylkum Desert. The images from the Terra satellite feature the patches of water remaining in the disappearing Aral Sea, which was once the fourth largest inland sea in the world. They look dark green in 2001, light green in 2005, as the sea grew shallower, and this year they are all but gone. The seawater once covering 26,000 square miles vanishes

If you want to know why the American public has such a dim view of lawyers, you should read an opinion issued last month by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Williams v. BASF. The opinion describes the allegations of a class of onetime asbestos plaintiffs who claim that a BASF predecessor and lawyers at Cahill Gordon & Reindel conspired to cheat them out of their rightful recovery in decades-old asbestos suits. According to the plaintiffs, who have depositions and document evidence to back their accusations, Cahill and its former client, a BASF predecessor, systematically hid and destroyed evidence

PRINCETON, NJ -- Registered voters are more likely to view their choice of candidate in this year´s midterm elections as a message of opposition (32%) rather than support (20%) for President Barack Obama. That 12-percentage-point margin is similar to what Gallup measured for Obama in 2010 and George W. Bush in 2006, years in which their parties performed poorly in the midterm elections.(Snip for graph) Gallup first asked this question in 1998, the year Republicans were moving toward impeaching President Bill Clinton for lying about his affair with a White House intern. That year, when Clinton´s approval rating was 63%,

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas

The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

threat to America than any terror group -

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
